    Bulge,

    You bored??

    FYI in Italy it is considered a food, not a drink. A breakfast food at that - if they see you drink it after 11:00 AM you are labeled as a tourist for sure...

    Oh, by the way - i HATE espresso coffee drinks - give me Columbian every time (I prefer the light roasts).

    HS, I drink Columbian made in my Keurig but I have 2 new Expresso machines that we don't use. My one daughter wants one but not the other daughter. Mike.

    Mike,

    We have nearly the same machine except ours is a Mr.Coffee brand. While it is way to complicated for me to operate, my wife makes a mean chocolate latte(i think thats what it's called). I usually just prefer regular old coffee myself but do enjoy the latte's she makes.

    I don't know what the difference between a Cappuccino and a Latte is though.

    You guys are comparing a Cappuccino to a Latte they are not even close to the same thing.

    Cappuccino-Besides a shot of espresso, the most important factor in preparing a cappuccino is the texture and temperature of the milk. When a barista steams the milk for a cappuccino, microfoam is created by introducing very tiny bubbles of air into the milk, giving the milk a velvety texture. The traditional cappuccino consists of an espresso, on which the barista pours the hot foamed milk, resulting in a 2 cm (¾ inch) thick milk foam on top. Variations of the mixtures are usually called cappuccino chiaro (white cappuccino, also known as a wet cappuccino) with more milk than normal, and cappuccino scuro (dark cappuccino, also known as a dry cappuccino) with less steamed milk than normal.

    Latte- a latte is pretty much espresso with warm milk.

    Once you've had a good cappuccino your hooked, not many places take the time to make them right. It is all about the foam. If your going to make a cappuccino you need a good machine, that will start at about $350 on the low end.

    At our trap club, I pour the brown water they call coffee into a cup that has swiss miss chocolate (with marshmellows of course) -- and have an inexpensive machiato. Yum!

    Frank C,

    Surprised you are up so late - most likely jet lag.

    There is very little caffeine in espresso coffee - when they roast the bean they destroy most of it. The darker the roast the less caffeine in the cup.

    I work with Italians all the time - I take my Columbian coffee with me. You should see the Italians after a cup of it. Can you say 'bouncing off the walls...'

    First thing after the lights go on in my shop every morning , is the espresso machine gets turned on. I cant function until ive had a double shot.

    Then a couple of "Caps" when the wife gets in, then on average 3-4 shorts for the day.

    I LIKE coffee.....

    I quess I'm not as much of a refined individual as most folks. I drink Folgers Decaf at home, as does my wife. My sister in law, on the other hand, takes her own special lend with her everywhere. Charlie

    It seems espresso has more caffeine per ounce than coffee. Espresso is not roasted btw.

    So what does all this mean?



    Although we can conclude that drip coffee contains much more caffeine than espresso - this is all due to its much larger serving size - 8oz vs 1oz.



    Obviously since espresso is served in much smaller volumes, we see less caffeine (from a beverage perspective).



    BUT when viewed from a volume perspective - espresso has a much more caffeine than drip coffee.
